A Day In Manchester

Here's a few photos of some bits and pieces in Manchester.

Piccadilly Gardens features some interesting statues, including one of the Duke of Wellington.

Sir Robert Peel. This statue was the first ever outdoor statue to be raised in Manchester by public subscription.

Manchester Arndale currently hosts the 15 foot Giant Freddie.

Some big shops and a towering cinema.

The Manchester Wheel became the third such structure I've been on inside a year (see here for earlier turns:

Some views of Manchester from above.

Hmm...but which one of these fine places was my destination...?
